Right so i know quite a few of yall out there know about what happened in times square a few days ago. If not I cant get the link right now so if someone wants to put it up please please please do. At any rate here are a few things i want to hear some thoughts and ideas on, maybe we can get a little nifty discussion going on.
Firstly, for reference I listen to Glenn Beck and that being said this is where I heard this little tidbit. Where the suspect vehicle was parked was either right near or in front of the Viacom building. Viacom is the parent company of Nick, Paramount, MTV networks, BET, Logo, and Comedy Central who airs south park which had the Muhammad in a bear suit deal which i choose not to know much about. Is this an Interesting coincidence?
Secondly what if the device did detonate, how many people could it have taken out so to speak. What would be the domestic and international ramifications? Would we invade again, start another war maybe? (Heard this comment today... kinda makes me think a bit) Lets say had this gone off and killed many people, damaged the media company of Viacom and maybe more, might it have a silver lining? I remember 9/11, where i was sitting in class, who my teacher was... I remember the info being kept from us but when kids kept getting pulled out of class and a student showed up late we all had to find out. I remember after the attacks, the country seemed to all unite, there was a flag in front of everybody's house... people went to church and prayed, "United We Stand" became our motto again. People supported the troops (Not to say they don't now), wore yellow ribbons, joined the military and devoted them selves to the principles of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal courage. Even those who didn't enlist lived by those values more than I had ever recalled. Would the deaths of the people in times square, the shock that the country and world would feel when shaken out of their complacency bring back days like that?
Third and my final, what would the ramifications be in our individual lives from measures that could have gone into place after? I know we've all heard the "show me your papers" thing with AZ but might we be required to have our vehicles scanned, patted down randomly, maybe even internment camps like in WWII all in the name of our well being.
I know a lot of this, probably much of this sounds far fetched and possibly crazy. More than anything I would really like to see what everyone thinks about this, what could it have been?
